Application industries and characteristics of pneumatic ball valves

Taike Valves pneumatic ball valve is a valve installed on the ball valve with a pneumatic actuator. Because of its fast execution speed, it is also called pneumatic quick shut-off ball valve. What industry can this valve be used in? Let Taike Valve Technology tell you in detail below.

Pneumatic ball valves are widely used in today’s society, and can be generally divided into the following industries: First, the production industry includes petrochemical, metallurgy and papermaking industries, and more specifically, waste discharge, wastewater treatment, etc.; second, the transportation industry Such as oil transportation, natural gas transportation and liquid transportation. The pneumatic ball valve produced by Taike Valve is widely used in various industries because of its own unique advantages. Its advantages are as follows:

1. The fluid resistance is small, and its resistance coefficient is equal to that of a pipe section of the same length.

2. Simple structure, small size and light weight.

3. It is compact and reliable. At present, the sealing surface material of the ball valve is widely used in plastics, which has good sealing performance and has been widely used in vacuum systems.

4. Easy to operate, fast opening and closing, only need to rotate 90° from fully open to fully closed, which is convenient for remote control.

5. The maintenance is convenient, the structure of the pneumatic ball valve is simple, the sealing ring is generally movable, and it is convenient to disassemble and replace.

6. When fully open or fully closed, the sealing surface of the ball and the valve seat is isolated from the medium, and when the medium passes through, it will not cause erosion of the valve sealing surface.

7. It has a wide range of applications, with diameters as small as a few millimeters and as large as several meters, and can be applied from high vacuum to high pressure.

8. Because the power source of the pneumatic ball valve is gas, the pressure is generally 0.2-0.8MPa, which is relatively safe. If the pneumatic ball valve leaks, compared with hydraulic and electric, the gas can be discharged directly, which has no pollution to the environment and has higher safety.

9. Compared with manual and turbine rotating ball valves, pneumatic ball valves can be configured with larger diameters (manual and turbine rotating ball valves are generally below DN300 caliber, and pneumatic ball valves can currently reach DN1200 caliber.)
